Description: Scelsi collectors will have everything here but this is not being offered for them. This is for someone out there who may have been intrigued (but put off by full-price discs) by Scelsi’s approach to music via microscopic examination of the properties of sound itself as transmitted through instruments which can use harmonics, melismas, microtones and other techniques to underline an important axiom of his philosophy: “Sound is Mysticism in its absolute purity.” Claudia Giottoli (flute), Raffaele D’Aniello (piano), Paolo Puliti (oboe), Leonardo Ramadori (percussion), Natalia Benedetti (clarinet).
